I am very interested in seeing answers to this question as I am currently
writing the LDAP chapter of the "Samba-3 by Example" book and would like
to recommend a good tool.

I too have spent a lot of time evaluating the LDAP admin tools, as well as
how best to advise newer admins (those who have yet to cut their teeth on
LDAP) how best to configure an LDAP backend.

SWAT does NOT do LDAP configuration.

LAM is nice, but has a little maturation aheead of it. It's very clsoe

I have not tried the IDEALX Webmin tool yet. That's on my plate for
tomorrow, as I start to write the new chapter.

It's 3:21am here and I have been solidly at this since 8am yesterday
morning. Time for bed now. I will see what your request delivers. Thanks
for asking.
